If you’re one of the people who’d been blessed with an unconditional love of a parent or parents, you are among the few. As a psychologist I can tell you it is more uncommon than not. And studies show that children who are loved do much better in every aspect of their lives. As a matter of fact, studies indicate that many people’s long term issues are related to not being genuinely loved by a parent, especially early on.
Whether a child is abandoned or abused, close or far away, many long for the love and the validation from their parents, sometimes for a lifetime. That’s how strong it is.
Parenting is a tough business and yet some people seem to do it with ease. It is truly a gift. I hope you enjoy the video of one lucky kid and dad, and hope that you can relate to their relationship. Video
